  1. 0 Since there seems to be a few of us going to work at SCH, I thought we could start our own thread.

    I will be on neuro and start in July.

    I will be starting on ortho/neuro in July also. I am very excited!! Although, it is going to be so nice to have these next few weeks to relax before going into the 'real world'!

    I start on July 9 and will be in rehab, afternoon shift, and will float to ortho/neuro when there's a low census. We'll be living in Little Falls, and are moving from the Duluth area. I think there are 3 others from around here who I graduated with headed there, too.

    Can I ask in the packets you received to start (orientation schedule, benefits, etc) was there a unit orientation schedule in there? I have the classroom schedule, but not for the unit. Anyway I was just looking that over and thought about it. I was going to call but figured I will need to wait until Monday! Have a nice weekend!

    I didn't have a unit orientation, but did call and ask about it (about 2 weeks ago) - I was told that they weren't completed yet, but that I should expect to work one of the weekends and be on the floor the other days when there wasn't classroom training. Since I'll be commuting the first few weeks, I figure I'll just have scrubs handy for those days without classroom training and I'm keeping all my weekends open Hope that helps!

    Hey thanks for the info! That is definitely good to know. I am going to be going through all of my stuff tomorrow and try to get all of the paperwork filled out, so maybe I will call and see if they have any updates? Thanks again!

    Congratulations What a great feeling!

    Has anyone gotten any more information about work schedules? I might call tomorrow and see if they are done yet..I would like to know about weekends and stuff because I have a lot of kid stuff to schedule around my work schedule.

    Also, kind of a silly questions but what do we have to wear to general orientation? Scrubs or business casual stuff? The stuff I worry about..crazy:uhoh21:

    I called about the work schedule about a week or two ago and she didn't have it done yet because the July schedule wasn't ready. I am not sure if this is for everyone but she asked me if I would be willing to work 12 hr shifts most of the time during orientation (I was hired for 8s) and also that I may only work every 3rd weekend during orientation instead of every other, but I don't know any more than that. I asked Brandon in HR what we should wear to orientation too haha and he said business casual. I think I am going to stop there tomorrow to drop off some paperwork and if I find out anything new I will post it!

    Ok, three days and counting Anyone else feeling a little nervous as well as excited? I finally got my schedule. I am on neuro 7-3:30 on Friday so a little floor experience for me. Plus, I don't own a bunch of a dress clothes so wearing scrubs will be nice LOL

    I did my clinicals in St Cloud so the general orientation will be a nice review for me. I don't have a weekend until the second weekend of August then I have 5 11-7:30 in a row...get them all done at once

    Feeling exactly as you are - down to the clothes No schedule yet, though - I'll get that on Monday. Almost there! My husband's last day of work is tomorrow, then on Monday he starts his new role as stay-at-home dad. Then the move in 3 weeks - exciting but scary - in a good way. New baby, new career, new house, new town - woo hoo!

    Woo hoo, I got my ID today...officially Dawn S., RN ortho/neuro now :smiley_aa and I can park in the employee parking ramp

    Quick question for you guys, do either of you know if we get paid a shift differential for our night or weekend shifts? I was reading the info on the pay stub sheet and it says night shift differential, professional and there is a seperate category for straight night RN so I'm kind of curious. Plus, did you get the good news in the mail, we get a raise before we even start Can't beat that!
